I'm a nutritional epidemiologist (one of those) studying how changes in food systems influence our diet and health outcomes. I am currently focusing on improving diet for kids through school-based interventions and policies in the U.S. and in Thailand.

In my spare time, I enjoy bike touring, diving, hiking, cooking, reading, and growing plants.

March: Tried backcountry skiing for the first time and loved it! Went to Tilly Jane A-Frame on Mt Hood.
